A synthetic fibre whose most famous trademark names are nylon, perlon and Helanca.
Polyamide characteristics: Basically similar to polyester but polyamide is stronger than other synthetics (doesn’t tear or rub easily).
Polyamide care: as for polyester. As polyamide is slightly more sensitive to heat than polyester, do not exceed a washing temperature of 40 degrees C. Iron only at the lowest temperature setting and without steam.
